SAVAGENESS (Veins embraced in the property)

Please join us for the latest iteration of SMOKEPENNY LYRICHORD HEAVENBRED,presented in conjunction with the Chicago Architecture Biennial: Jennifer Scappettone—Judd Morrissey—Abraham Avnisan @ 6018North

SAVAGENESS, or There are veins embraced in the property

September 30, 2017 // 6-9 PM (cocktails at 6 PM, performance at 7 PM)

6018 N. Kenmore Ave, Chicago, IL

This mixed reality performance will tap the sprawling veins of modern architecture and telecommunications infrastructures by activating the metamorphic, collaborative anatomy of 6018North. Integrating 3D scans of the house, SAVAGENESS mines unseen depths of space and telegraphically coded language to expose the materials and human labor that make the networked domesticity of urban life possible.

Combining original and archival sources, and employing a custom augmented reality system, the artists project poetic reformulations of history through high resolution Lidar scans of 6018North to create an immersive yet otherworldly experience of the space—and of the Chicago Architecture Biennial installation In Wood We Trust.
